Trailblazer Nation Spring Fest to celebrate the season with egg hunts, activities for all ages

To celebrate the spring season, Dixie State University is hosting its annual Trailblazer Nation Spring Fest.

Open to the community, the event is set to take place on April 14 and feature a variety of games, activities and egg hunts.

“Trailblazer Nation Spring Fest is the perfect opportunity for the community to come to Dixie State University and experience our beautiful campus this time of year. We appreciate the continued support of our community, and this is a small way we can say thank you,” Valerie De La O, events & promotions coordinator at DSU, said. “Between the Children’s Egg Hunt and Golden Egg Hunt, all ages can experience the thrill of finding great prizes.”

The event will kick off at 5 p.m. on the university’s North Encampment Mall with music, food trucks, crafts and games provided by DSU’s STEM Outreach and Events & Promotions. Attendees will have the opportunity to create their own bunny, decorate a bag, win prizes in the duck pond and more.

The free Children’s Egg Hunt, which is open to kids up to 15 years old, will start at 6 p.m. and include more than 10,000 eggs hidden near the O.C. Tanner Fountain on the DSU campus. Children will be divided by age and a section will be available for children with special needs, which will be accessible for kids using wheelchairs or walkers.

The Golden Egg Hunt will be the final event of the evening, starting at 6:30 p.m. at the North Encampment Mall. Featuring major prizes, this hunt is open to all individuals 16 and older. The Golden Egg Hunt will take place all over campus and the prizes are bigger and better than ever. Pre-registration is $15 and required.
